Community Surveys

Community Surveys are helpful tools to obtain information from people who lives in a community and can be utilized to gauge opinions and receive feedback. 

Bottlenecks of paper surveys


  • Leaving a paper copy of the survey form with respondents usually results in a low return rate with many incomplete or misunderstood questions.  

  • The time delay between delivery and collection of the survey form also means that twice the amount of time is needed to complete the survey.

  • Multiple visits to respondents lead to high transport cost for field workers.

  • The location of the respondent is linked to GIS data in a separate exercise, and is dependant on correct spelling and official naming of a locality.
